An African-American waitress received a $450 tip and an inspiring note from three White customers in Washington, D.C., reports The Washington Post.

From The Washington Post

When the men finished their meals they left Rosalynd Harris, a 25-year-old African-American woman, a personal message on the receipt that noted their differences. They also left her a $450 tip on their $72.60 bill — a 625 percent tip.

“We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people,” the note reads. “Not race. Not gender. Just American.” Then he added, “God Bless!”

The men were gone before Harris saw the receipt. She saw the words before she saw the tip, and the words alone were enough to overwhelm her. “You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you,” she said, “but [the customer is] more embracing than even some of my more liberal friends, and there was a real authenticity in our exchange.”

Harris received the positive note during Inauguration weekend, which included a Peace Ball with Black celebrities rallying together for hope, reports New York Magazine.

    “from three White customers in Washington, D.C” how did they get that these guys were trump supporters? When did Rosalynd Harris or the author of this story come to the conclusion they were trump supporters? Was it when they said they have differences and disagree on certain issues? Does that automatically make you a trump supporter? Did I miss that part of the story?

    The cave n!@@ers in cowboy hats gave this beautiful Nubian a generous tip. That’s what the filthy neanderthal apes were supposed to do after receiving excellent service. They should have never been let out of the caves of Europe.

  3. Elizabeth I know 1 black man that yawned about the violence in Chicago
    For 8 years I also know the white man that’s taken his place has vowed to do something about it

    That was a nice gesture. Sarah, I’ve noticed that when someone, Black” agrees with many then they are accepted on this blog. She or he is intiyled to their views, etc., etc. When you don’t agree or have a different opinion, then they are vilified. Why?? Why can’t we agree to disagree? Just asking.

    • Everyone is guilty of doing this. Do not come across as someone who hate blacks and see how people like Peter Johnson, Jhuf, etc act. They want to say people are being “sheep” when it fact people views are based on their life experiences. Some blacks do not trust (with good reason) and some blacks are willing to perform for Trump regardless to the nasty things he said about others.

      • what life experience would that be?
        This is the most prosperous country for minority’s on the planet however prosperity comes from applying yourself and being educated NOT expecting the government to take care of you, the majority of AA’s in this country have a good lifestyle even those who are poor live better than their counter parts in other country’s
        And yes many blacks are sheep they continue to vote for the same politicians who do nothing for their community’s because the liberal elitist black plantation overseers tell them to
        Barak Obama aligned himself with some questionable people (rev Wright, Father Flagger, Bill Airs) who said horrible things about others
        as far as performing for Trump What the f!@k have blacks gained from the last 8 years

    • so you lump all Trump supporters into the same category, OK I guess a whites impression that all blacks are lazy, fatherless, uneducated, criminals, and ghetto hoes with multiple kids by multiple men on welfare is now justified. THANKS

      • Hey fool, u say the same thing daily. Go away. Far, far way. Your opinion doesn’t matter here. Bye.

      • Supporters of someone “thinking” compare to “skin color” is stupid and not the same. Most of Trump supporters are the same with a few excepts. Now if she would though all whites are racist, snake in the grass, murder-suicide, child molesters, serial killers, befriend you to stab you in the back, theives in the night, trailer park trash who get abortions more than any group, then you would have a point Jhuff.

      • Elizabeth on said:

        Jhuff, sound like you are only revealing what you always thought about blacks regardless to this situation. You just proven the point what some people think of some Trump supporters which always trying to hide behind someone else when your true feelings are racist. I wont even generalize this about all whites because it seem like many whites hate Trump just as must as many blacks. There is just a certain kind of “white” that supports Trump.

      • Amber: you do know that Trump got 30% of Hispanic ,8% of black and 51% of white female, so your assertion that color has anything to do with anything is assssssinine.
        Also blacks make up 12.5% of the pop. But account for 37% of abortions and 63% of murders

        Elizabeth: I am Black and unlike you I’m smart enough to know not everything is about race, the race baiters have trained plantation Negros like you to see everything as racist until they tell you different that’s why people like you yawn at the slaughter going on in Chicago but burn your towns down when a Thug like Michael Brown gets his head blown off

        Diane: really you talking about someone repeating the same dribble?

      • BTW this is directed at Amber: what did the black lady receive after she got an abortion?? Answer: a $500 check from crime stoppers.
        Now Elizabeth since I’m black I can’t be a racist for telling that joke

      • I know that (those numbers are still small compare to the overall groups). I was just commenting on your comment. Like Sarah said, many whites hate Trump but it seem to be certain kind of whites who support Trump.

      • Elizabeth on said:

        We do not know if you are black or not. You can claim to be black and not be black. And that joke just sound stupid since all races have criminals. I do not get the joke.

      • Elizabeth on said:

        Also, Jhul, the same stuff you are directing at me can be done in reverse to you. Everything is not about race but everything should not be denied either. Also, white women have more abortions than black women because most blacks can not afford it or they keep their babies. As for race baiters, do not hate those who wont be in denial about race. If YOU want to be in denial, that is you. Again, people talk from their own life experiences. If you are not dealing with race issue, that good for you but other black are dealing with it and they have a RIGHT to speak out against it if they choose. Who died and made you God that they should not. Again, speak about your OWN experience.

      • Elizabeth on said:

        Also, many blacks are not yawning at what is going on in Chicago. Many people are trying to do something BUT it takes EVERYONE. Since you have so much to say, WHAT IN THE H@^^ are YOU doing about it? You can get off you tail and do something as well instead of finding fault.

      • Elizabeth , pay Jhuff no attention. he is full of it. He always find a way to put down blacks YET he wants to complain when blacks point out race issues. I also know as well that everything is not about race; however, no one who feels race issues effect them should sit back and say nothing. As for the term “race baiter”, THANK YOU. The same was said about Dr. King and now look those negoes who degraded Dr. King back then now reap the benefits in what Dr. King and others did as RACE BAITERS. No, do not sit quiet and if people like Jhul do not like it, too bad. That is nothing new. And yes, I do work in the community in Georgia. Thank you very much.

      • No Amber MLK was not a “race baiter” he was a civil rights activist he preached equality for all but he also preached personal responsibility
